Tonact 10 side effects

I am advised by the doctor to take Tonact 10 for high Cholesterol. Now I have been taking it almost for a year. I sometimes feel weak and loose control of nerves. Is this kind of side effect?

Atorvastatin New Study - Save your money - Please Read

A new NIH study just came out in finding that you can most likely stretch your dollar with the use of statins.
